Ron Russon’s portrayal of wildlife has a subtle hint of native spiritualty combined with bold contemporary colors and lines. These artists as well as work by several artists will be displayed.

Some artists strive for realism when portraying animals, others go for fun and the imaginary.
Sarah Webber is an artist who can achieve a visual sense of realism when painting her subjects, but her titles take the renderings beyond just the visual, to establish a short story caught in time. In her painting called “Leap of Faith, Sarah gives the viewer the sense of a optimism as the bunny hops into the unknown. “Two Times the Fun”, shows two burros, caught giving their attention to a subject off canvas, and captures their sense of anticipation of what is to come.
Trevor Mikula deals strictly in the imagined. His painting style is honed to an economy of brushwork and details. The colors are yummy, and the subjects huggable. Animal Kingdom features all styles and interpretations of our wonderful world of animals. Artists include Ron Russon, Jaime Ellsworth, Connie Townsend, Chaille Trevor, and many more.

Animals were crucial to the lives of Native peoples and western settlers, and they are still valued and enjoyed today, in our new west. Artists participating include Sarah Webber, Sushi Felix, Chaille Trevor, Bill Colt, Theresa Paden, and more, with a special introduction of our new artist Cathy Carey.

Theresa Paden assigns outrageous hues to her beautifully rendered horses. Leslie Anne Webb presents humor in the shenanigans of her equines.

WILDE MEYER GALLERY is well known for its colorful eclectic art presentations. Even though WILDE MEYER ANNEX specializes in animal related art, these pieces can be in splendid color also. This show presents animals in imaginative hues to downright conjured up hues. Some of the artists showing, like Theresa Paden, portray close up images of realistically proportioned animals in outrageous colors. Other artists, like Jaime Ellsworth, add the real punch of color through complicated compositions. Greg Dye uses gigantic slashes of vibrant color to create iconic bison. Other artists use traditionally painted subjects surrounded by color.
WILDE MEYER ANNEX specializes in animal art. Some artists paint animals as the main subject, others paint or sculpt animals in situations – real or imagined. Connie Townsend substitutes animals in place of humans in exciting situations. Judy Feldman includes animals in inviting rooms and gardens to show a sense of scale and comfort. Artists like James Swanson include animals in landscapes to invoke a sense of nostalgia and appreciation of nature. Still others make the animal the complete picture, whether realistic or reincarnated with imaginative colors.
Creatures sometimes comfort us – their human buddies. Sometimes they comfort each other. Often times we can observe them in situations of comfort. They are always a joy to view. Artists participating include: Chaille Trevor, Judy Feldman, Connie Townsend and others.
